Hold the heat gun about 4 inches away from the wood, using
slight back-and-forth motions.
2. The paint should
start to soften and begin to blister. Be careful not to
overheat the paint since it will turn into a paste that is
hard to remove. Remember, too, that wood is a flammable
material and can be scorched or catch fire.
3. Remove the heat and
start scraping the paint from wood with a metal scraper.
4. Repeat steps until
the paint is mostly removed.
5. Use the rough
sandpaper to sand down any sections that still have paint.
6. Use the fine
sandpaper over the entire surface to create a clean,
smooth surface for painting.
